Fanci Beebe has passed away.

On Friday October 4, 2013 around 12:35pm my soul mate and best friend Fanci Beebe lost her battle with Pancreatic Cancer. She passed peacefully at home with her family next to her.

It seemed like she was doing better and that her treatment was going to give her more time, but sadly that was not the case. The news leaves us all with a great void; Fanci touched so many lives. I know I will never be the same person again and I suspect many of you feel the same.

She loved Sailors Cove and FIYC. She was a strong stubborn woman and she always worked to make Sailors Cove something special. It was not just the way Sailors Cove looked; it was how we all treated each other as a community. Fanci wanted all to feel they were welcome in Sailors Cove and that they had a home there. She always went the extra mile to make new friends comfortable.

Fanci also had a soft, vulnerable side that probably only a few of us knew. She loved me unconditionally, and I am very thankful that our last words expressed the love we held for each other.

I want to thank every one of you for your support of Fanci and for all your wonderful notecards and IMs. Thank you too for supporting the new owners of Sailors Cove. Your support has gone a long way in us helping her family.

This has been my comfort through all of this, I hope you understand:

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come
Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 8: 35, 37-end

Words escape me at this time, so I won’t comment further tonight, but please note:

David Wetherby and Chaos Mandelbrot will arrange a fleet sail in Fanci’s memory this coming week, and RJ Kikuchiyo will add Fanci’s name to the Memorial at Fastnet Light. Joy Canadeo will organize a memorial service in a few weeks’ time, where we can join and remember Fanci together.

    I’m very sorry to hear about Fanci’s passing. My heart goes out to you Patrick.

  6. We are all numbed by the suddenness of Fanci’s passing. There will be better occasions in the days ahead for us all to express our feelings at this sad event.

    However we would, on behalf of the members of Fishers Island Yacht Club, like to place on record our gratitude for her life and the contribution she, together with her soul mate Patrick, has made in Second Life, particularly to the world of Sailing and to FIYC. Eschewing the limelight, she was tireless in her endeavours behind the scenes, and in building Sailors Cove.

    We will ever be in her debt.

    Just weeks after first rezzing in SL, rocketing along on some just-acquired freebie personal water craft, I by chance landed on the shores of Sailors Cove. I was stunned and amazed at it’s beauty and thoughtful design. It reminded me of where I live in coastal Massachusetts and I knew I had found my SL ‘Home’. Later, I would come to appreciate the effort and love it took to make this wonderful place thrive, and especially the dedication and thoughtfulness that Fanci delivered everyday ‘by the boat load’ to every Sailors Cove resident. Thank you, Fanci!
